Julie Ann (Vollbrecht) Davis, age 60 of Hanover, MN, passed away January 12, 2021.
She was born on August 30, 1960 in Minneapolis, MN to Herbert and Cecilia (Barthel) Vollbrecht. Julie grew up in Hanover and graduated from Buffalo High School with the class of 1978.
In the spring of 1982, she married the love of her life, Lonnie Davis in Monticello, MN. Together they raised two children.
Julie was a very spirited individual who had high energy and loved to have a good time. She was easy-going, friendly, and had a witty sense of humor. Julie wasn’t shy about letting people know about her opinions, but deep down she was a very caring and compassionate person. She had a sassy personality and fun sense of style that you could never forget!
Julie worked for several years in the auto parts industry and had a vast knowledge about trucks. She loved learning about all the different parts and helping customers find what they needed in the store. She retired so that she could become a full-time grandma and be able to spend more time creating memories with her beloved grandchildren. Julie was a natural caretaker and loved to provide homecooked meals and treats for family and friends. She never let you leave hungry, and made sure to always pack enough food for everyone to enjoy.
Going to truck shows, collecting trains, and spending time outdoors were a few of the things she enjoyed doing in her spare time. Julie and the family would take trips near Longville to camp and ride 4-wheelers at their favorite spot known as “Trucker’s Cove”. They’d spend time on the lake, have barbeques, and enjoy each other’s company. Her family meant the world to her.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Herbert and Cecilia; brother, Clyde; and brother-in-law, Richard Wandersee.
She is survived by her husband, Lonnie; children, Jessica (Mitch) Schindele and Dustin (Jill) Davis; grandchildren, Nathan, Caitlyn, Chelsea, Logan, Carissa, Garrett, Levi, and Gavin; siblings, Sandra Wandersee, Larry (Terri) Vollbrecht, Mike (Anna Mae) Vollbrecht, and Susie (Dan) Oliver; and many nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
